Message From the Executive Head Teacher
Welcome to our School
Shenstone Lodge School is a Special School which educates and supports Primary and Secondary aged students with Social, Emotional and Mental Health difficulties.
Operating across two sites we are committed to providing a structured and caring environment which promotes education, aspiration and challenge. We aim to deliver a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum which develops core academic skills, improved self-management, pride and resilience.
The Shenstone Lodge site is based just outside of Shenstone village, near Lichfield in Staffordshire. The site has been home to a special school for over 50 years and currently has children from Y1 to Y7.
There is a residential provision on the Shenstone site which accommodates up to 12 students overnight between Monday and Thursday during term time. A residential placement can offer additional educational, emotional and behavioural support by providing a programme of structured activities, play and recreation. Experienced care staff work closely with students to develop a range of life skills and encourage appropriate social interaction.
The Brades Lodge site is a day school situated in Tividale, Oldbury and supports students from Y7 to Y11.
All students have regular opportunities to participate in off-site activities which have a range of academic and social benefits. We are extremely active in our localities and offer a range of opportunities for partnership working and engagement in joint activities.
We are a school which has undergone significant change over the last few years and is developing rapidly. We joined the Manor Hall Academy Trust in July 2020 and we have high aspirations for our students and stakeholders with an ambitious vision. We look forward to our collective journey and making a difference.
